Around Europe in many dishes 1: meaty delights in Ludlow

Here we are back in Europe, and like last time two years ago I'm going to keep a kind of travel food journal on the blog. Today we were in Ludlow, known not only for its beautiful medieval centre but also as a foodie town. And one of the things it's most famous for is great meat, with some terrific local butchers selling everything from charcuterie to game meat, beef fillet to faggots.
For lunch, we had an excellent plate of all-day 'local breakfast', featuring truly tasty Ludlow sausage, black pudding and bacon from famous butcher Wall's.
Later, at Ludlow Markets, we also bought some fantastic salami, yes, actual English salami :) which is hand-made from free-range pork by some farmers near Tenbury(which is kind of close to Ludlow) Very good too!

  1. Goodness! Looks like you'd be in trouble in Ludlow if you were a vegetarian or couldn't eat pork, ;-)
